We have had another busy week in Primary one.
We hope you enjoy looking through the photographs with your child.
We have now shared almost all of our memory boxes with the class. This gave us a great opportunity to practise our talking and listening skills.
We have continued to focus on recognising and creating rhymes
We are developing our motor skills to help us with handwriting. Our pre-writing pattern this week was straight lines.
We have been demonstrating our counting skills to our teachers. they are very impressed!
Other areas of the curriculum
In outdoor PE we are learning to travel in different ways.
We have been practising the skill of holding scissors correctly.
Things to do at home :-
practice hopping on one leg, jumping with two feet together and skipping.
practise using scissors correctly ( remember, thumb on top)
find rhyming pairs of words, they can be real or nonsense as long as they rhyme.
count forwards and backwards within 10, starting and stopping at different number (eg start at 3 and stop at 9)
Please help your child to be able to put their coat on independently. Of course we will help with buttons and zips where necessary, but we would really like all pupils to be able to put their arms in the sleeves by themselves. Thank you
Things to remember:
- PE will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays.
- Please label all your child’s items (water bottles and tubs included).
- Please say goodbye your child at the top of the steps and wave to them as they enter the classroom. Please remember to maintain the 2 metre distance at all times between adults. Please don’t come to the class door. If you have an urgent message for us email /phone the school office. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
- Please remember not to bring any nuts or nut products to school.
